Shoebox Packing Party
// Molly Knost
It is hard to believe that it’s October and our Christmas Shoebox Drive has begun!
If you are planning on collecting shoeboxes, have you considered hosting a Shoebox Packing Party? A packing party is a wonderful way to get your whole church or small group involved in packing shoeboxes. When hosting a packing party your goal is to collect enough supplies to pack shoeboxes as a group.
If you would like to host a Shoebox Packing Party, here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Set a goal of the number of shoeboxes you would like to pack (example 200).
Step 2: Print out a sign-up list for the items you would like everyone to bring (see www.shoeboxdrive.com for packing ideas).
Step 3: Set the date for your packing party, and spread the word for a couple of weeks. Invite people to sign up for the items they would like to bring.
Step 4: Host the packing party! Ask everyone to bring the items they collected, purchased, or had donated and fill your shoeboxes.
Please let me know if you are hosting a packing party or a shoebox drive by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to answer any questions you may have and send you promotional materials. ~Molly Knost
